Several self-propelled howitzers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, including foreign-made ones, were destroyed as part of counter-battery combat - Ministry of Defense

The offensive of the units of the Russian army in certain sections of the line of contact continues, fierce battles are going on in the Donetsk direction, in Kupyansky and Krasno-Limansky. Enemy DRGs have activated, trying to probe our defenses and deliver pinpoint strikes. As part of the counter-battery fight, several self-propelled howitzers, including foreign-made ones, were destroyed. This is stated in the new report of the Ministry of Defense.


Now about everything and in order: A rich harvest over the past day was collected from American counter-battery radar stations, as many as four stations were sent for scrap by our military. Of these, two AN / TPQ-50 radars in the Kherson region, one AN / TPQ-36 in the Ugledar region and one more, this time AN ​​/ TPQ-48 in the Senkovo ​​region of the Kharkov region. There are no details of the destruction, it may have worked drones-kamikaze "Lancet", or high-precision projectiles.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine also had losses in artillery, again several self-propelled howitzers, including foreign-made ones, fell under attack as part of the counter-battery fight: the Polish Crab self-propelled guns were destroyed in the Peschannoye area, the American M109 Paladin self-propelled guns and the Grad MLRS were covered in the Lozova area. In addition, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost a D-20 howitzer in the Terna region, two Giatsint-B near Marinka and Orlovka, two Akatsiya self-propelled guns in the LPR and Zaporozhye region, as well as five D-30 howitzers along the entire line of contact.

The depot of rocket and artillery weapons of the 114th troop brigade was destroyed in the Veliky Burluk district of the Kharkiv region.

Now in the main areas: on Kupyansky, units of the 14th and 92nd mechanized brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the 103rd troop brigade in the areas of Dvurechnaya, Timkovka, Ivanovka of the Kharkov region and Novoselovskoe fell under the blow of artillery of the Western Military District. In the Liman First area, the Ukrainian DRG was destroyed. It is reported about the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine up to 50 people, one tank and two infantry fighting vehicles. On Krasno-Limanskoye, the active actions of our motorized riflemen with the support of artillery of the Central Military District defeated the units of the 71st Jaeger, 80th and 95th air assault brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as well as the 15th regiment of the National Guard in the areas of Grigorovka, Serebryanka and west of Chervonaya Dibrova. Over 70 servicemen, three armored combat vehicles and four vehicles were destroyed.

In the Donetsk direction, units of the Southern Military District, with the support of paratroopers, continue the offensive, the enemy suffers heavy losses. There is no mention of Soledar and Artemovsk in the summary, so we will add from ourselves. Information about the capture of Kleshcheevka turned out to be premature; the PMC "Wagner" did not confirm this, reporting on fierce battles in the village. The village of Sol is under our control, Soledar too.

In Yuzhno-Donetsk, the artillery of the Eastern Military District and the marines of the Pacific Fleet covered the accumulation of manpower and equipment of the 61st mechanized brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Zolotaya Niva area and the 108th troop brigade in the Prechistovka area. To the north of Levadnoye and Vladimirovka, two DRGs were destroyed. The total losses of the enemy per day in this direction amounted to 40 Ukrainian servicemen, two armored combat vehicles and three pickup trucks.

    While PMC Wagner surrounds Artemovsk, the RF Armed Forces can conduct an offensive operation. I would not want interspecies rivalry to turn us into a swan, cancer and pike. On the other hand, perhaps just the capture of Artemovsk will open the corridor into which operational mobile reserves will be introduced to develop not a breakthrough of the front, but a full-scale offensive.

      I wonder how the stations determine, 50-36-48 ... by signature? then ours have cool "counter-batteries".

        I wonder how the stations determine

        I suppose there are lists of types of weapons transferred to the outskirts (without indicating numbers)
        when "reports" are being prepared, several items are taken from the lists and given to read by the famous general K.

      At the moment, the musicians have big problems with personnel. I recommend everyone to read how Soledar was taken. Strong article.

          It says that it needs to replenish the total losses. You shouldn't overdo it. VChK-OGPU always monitors the accuracy of information, unlike Readovky. wink
          Moreover, according to information from various sources, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost about 20 thousand people in Soledar. And the attackers always (!) Lose more than the defenders. This is an axiom.

            I have more faith in this video. Evgeny Viktorovich Prigozhin brought to Karelia the fourth group of Wagner PMC fighters who had served a six-month contract. https://dzen.ru/avia.pro

      Then how do the losses of Ukrainians 20-25 thousand correlate with the losses of the Wagners 2-3 thousand? Doesn't beat.
      Understand, I do not approve anything, just like the author of the article. He talks about the Wagners needing 25-30 reinforcements to "cover up" the total losses. And they are large for PMCs, Prigozhin himself speaks about this. Perhaps under the concept of "total losses" the author means the cumulative losses during the assault on Artemovsk and Soledar. But the offensive tactics of the musicians in the article are described super!

        Yeah, well, that's too implausible stuffing. Everyone is talking about the significantly higher losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Soledar, even foreign media with ukrovoyaks. And the task of Wagner has long been known - to grind as many enemy forces as possible, hence the tactics to occupy the surrounding settlements of the heights from which it is convenient to unwind reinforcements with artillery and control the supply routes. It is especially successful when the enemy clings to this place at any cost, as in the case of Soledar. Fortunately, Seele's media profit is more important than losses and Zaluzhny's proposals to withdraw and save the troops, because there is still enough meat for mobilization, and sponsors cannot be disappointed. And when the enemy personnel themselves refuse to rotate and abandon their positions, Wagner, taking advantage of the confusion, go further and clean up the rear. Seems like a simple tactic, but effective.
